So I was thinking, “I need to post something on the blog,” and there was nothing much going on around these parts, far as I could see, and my e-mail IN box, usually good for an item or two on a slow day, didn’t offer much either.
At that point I wondered: “Is there ANYTHING going on, anywhere?” So I looked. And having looked, thought I should do a virtual front — which, after such a long absence, is almost news in itself.
Here’s what I found:
- Deadly Blast at Moscow’s Main Airport Seen as Terror Attack (NYT) — Of course, I knew about this one; I’ve been hearing about it all day. What to say? — except, of course, that it’s horrible.
- Blue Chips Get Closer to 12000 (WSJ) — The Dow jumps higher than it’s been in 2.5 years. In sorta kinda related news at CRBR, Mike Fitts reports that SC Realtors are seeing some improvement.
- Loughner denies Arizona attempted murder charges (BBC) — That’s to say, he pleaded not guilty — to the first three charges.
- Emanuel removed from mayoral ballot (WashPost) — By a court. He says he’ll fight on. After all, he gave up a pretty good job to do this…
- Jack LaLanne: Founding Father Of Fitness (NPR) — I see he died Sunday, but if it was in the papers this morning, I read right over it. I used to watch this guy’s exercise show in the 60s, people — and he was old to be doing it then. If only I could be in the shape now that he was in at 90…
- Argentina woman survives 23-storey hotel fall (BBC) — Just to give you something to talk about.
